On November 12, 2011, Snap Judgment LIVE performed in the heart of Washington DC at the Sidney Harmon Hall, just blocks from the White House. I was joined by our host and spiritual leader: Glynn Washington, and my band, David Brandt (drums) and Tim Frick (bass).
The piece we did with 15 year-old wunderkind Noah St. John has gone viral, racking up 250,000 views in a few days. Watch, and you'll see why:
If you liked that don't miss the rest of the show. Videos are posted below.
Glynn, the band and I met up the week before in Oakland to work with half the storytellers. (As usual, 1 hour per storyteller.) Then we flew to DC, where we had a second rehearsal at NPR headquarters, where they have a nice studio:

Noah St. John returned for the finale.
